Gyrfalcon Technologies and Sensory partner to deliver edge AI and biometrics capabilities
AI companies Gyrfalcon Technology and Sensory have joined forces to deliver low latency, high reliability embedded, machine learning capabilities on edge devices, reads a press release. Gyrfalcon claims its AI acceleration technology increases biometric recognition performance by at least 4 to 8 times, delivering instant verification or authentication.
Gyrfalcon Technology developed its first Edge AI chip in 2017 and has since then been focused on delivering AI acceleration for low-cost mass market devices and produced three other neural network acceleration technologies. One of the company’s AI Accelerator chips has been used in LG’s Q70 Smartphone for image and video capabilities.
Sensory uses machine learning technologies such as voice, vision and natural language processing to boost user experience, after laying the groundwork for neural network approaches for embedded speech recognition for consumer electronics. The company claims to have developed an algorithm that uses the low latency and high reliability that can be harnessed on the GTI AI Accelerator chip portfolio, with an implementation that can recognize legitimate user faces with the highest levels of accuracy.
“Sensory’s face and voice biometrics have been implemented in many dozens of products that have shipped in billion-plus unit quantities. We have had lots of real-world feedback and a key focus for improving our TrulySecure technology has been delivering faster performance on lower cost hardware,” said Todd Mozer, Sensory’s CEO. “Our TrulySecure solution can run up to four times faster and provide a larger, more accurate model thanks to GTI’s AI accelerator chip.”
“Working with customers, we’ve learned that AI implementations are optimized best when companies bring ‘best-in-breed’ solutions together,” said Kimble Dong, co-founder and CEO of Gyrfalcon Technology Inc. “Our accelerator chips enable great design choices for device makers, and partners like Sensory leverage the chips in ways that delight customers with the convenience of fast access combined with peace-of-mind of reliable biometric security.”
In April, Sensory launched TrulyNatural, a platform for speech recognition at network edge to protect customer privacy.
